Twitter introduces new editing feature to track tweet history. see details

The ‘Edit Tweet’ feature introduced by Twitter has been in the news for quite some time now. As news agency ANI reports, there were concerns about the nature of the ‘Edit Tweet’ button, it appears that the new feature may leave a digital trail of your tweet history.

The edit function seems to have an ‘immutable’ quality, which means Twitter can create an entirely new tweet when edited, preserving previous versions of that tweet, according to a report by The verge.

Developer Manchun Wong has stated, “It appears that Twitter’s approach to editing tweets is irreversible, because instead of replacing the tweet text within the same tweet, it re-creates a new tweet with a list of the old with the modified content.” makes from. Tweets Before that edit.”

Meanwhile, app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi also tweeted a screenshot of the new edit button, teasing us of the feature’s potential when it goes live on Twitter. In a screenshot, Paluzzi shows how the ‘Edit Tweet’ option can appear in the three-dot menu to the right of your Tweet.

It is worth noting that for now it is unknown whether the tweet history will be visible only to users or it will be public for others to view.
